    Only in your imagination, at this point, as Toyota has not released them yet (nor any aftermarket that I'm aware of).

    I'm looking for 2010 mud flaps too. They need to come soon--our Vermont roads will remove all my paint pretty soon!

    I hear you and feel your pain. They sell them in the UK. Just need to find a seller that will ship over here... or wait till available here.

    See previous threads on the subject.

    There is at least one poster on here from the UK... can't recall his ID though. OTOH, if we can locate a dealership overthere that would be willing to ship here reasonably and with enough interest, it just might work.

    [edit] - I just sent Mike Dimmick a PM and asked him if he would recommend a dealership or parts place that would be willing to ship a large number of flaps over the pond. We will see what he says.

    I've been looking for them, too! I was on the phone today with Toyota "Customer Experience" complaining :drama: about the lack of OEM mud flaps and OEM body side moldings. The rep, assuming he knew what he was talking about, told me that someone in senior management decided that these accessories wouldn't be made available in the USA. All I got from the rep was an apology and a case number. (I think that did me about as much good as an investment in a lottery ticket!) Anyway, I sent a letter 2nd day snail-mail to Yuki Funo, CEO, Toyota Motor Sales USA this afternoon to express my displeasure. Who knows? Maybe Mr. Funo will put an end to this nonsense. Letters I've sent to CEO's have met with positive results on a few other occasions.

    Add me to the list of frustrated 2010 Prius owners looking for mud flaps. :frusty:

    Our Gen II Prius has never had a problem with the tires spraying dirt on the fenders like my Gen III does. Too bad because I really love my new Prius otherwise.

    I know this is an old tired thread - but I had to add in some pics - this is what it looks like when you drive on a newly paved road (our roads were re-surfaced) for 3 days!

    Hopefully a pic is worth all those words:cool:

    I've emailed dealers in Japan, tried Toy dealer websites all over the world - it is frustrating.....

    I'm trying to get the UK dealer on Ebay to at minimum combine shipping to the US.........

    Stay tuned...

    The pics don't do it justice - it isn't gray - it's black!

    Am I correct in understanding that this dealer has them or at least has access to them? And that they are OEM for at least part of Europe?

    Could you provide a link to the UK dealer eBay store?

    Thanks!

    Yes, Yes, Yes
    Goto eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace, and search Prius mud. They are the 2009on listing (2009+ for Europe is our 2010). I have asked about combined shipping - no response yet. I also am trying a few other avenues - I'll post on these once I get responses.

    Cost is around $150 delivered (I'm hoping to get that down below $100)

    I just sent PentagonSheffield an email enquiring as to the combined shipping cost for front and back mud flaps. I also asked what the cost would be for shipping 5 sets. Let's hope that there is some economies of scale in shipping across the pond!

    If anyone (including me) ends up buying multiple sets for other interested parties in PC, make sure you take in to account the secondary shipping costs to distribute the bulk order before quoting the group a price!

    I posted this elsewhere, but when I ordered my OEM body side moldings today from a Toyota dealership in Windsor, Canada, I asked the parts man about mud flaps. He told me that in the past he had filled orders for mud flaps from all over, including Germany and Belgium for a number of years. However, with the body change, he understood that Toyota in Canada would not be supplied with mud flaps any longer. (He was unaware that they were available in parts of Europe.)

    Good luck - I also mailed them, and sent EBAY inquiries - but nothing back yet... That's why I'm trying Germany and Japan (and South Africa for what it's worth).

    I'm trying to cost out 10 sets landed in California...
